Mary Chapin Carpenter lyrics: "Our Man Walter Cronkite" Where are the arms of the world? They've always been able to find us Caught between borders and shores Reaching past danger and blindness My mother wept over the headlines The Beatles appeared in my dreams "Ooh, boy", exclaimed our man Walter Cronkite As the eagle touched down on blurry TV And where are the eyes of the world? They've always been able to see you Why did you give up and turn away, At the moment that so many need you? And the sight of children in cages While dog whistles stink up the place Everything's different But nothing much changes Our man Walter Cronkite would be on the case And what will you miss when you're gone? Lovers and songs and the light ever-changing And the sense that once you belonged To something amazing It was something amazing Where is the heart of the world? I always believed it could love me It's one of those things without words Like the sight of the stars shining above me My father rode trains Monday to Friday His chin fell asleep on his chest And I carry what's left somewhere inside me And our man Walter Cronkite has gone to his rest Our man Walter Cronkite is gone
